An All Sibelius Concert

May 30, 2008 at 1:15 AM


A few days before a concert, The Kennedy Center often sends out emails announcing unsold seats at low prices. Earlier this week I got an email about Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting an all Sibelius concert. With my newfound love for Sibelius’s music (see my blog of Feb. 1), I saw this as a great opportunity. I spent $25 for a crummy seat (great acoustics but poor visibility in the nosebleed section). The program is Symphony #1, Oceanides, and Symphony #7. I read about them and about Sibelius on the Internet. Now I have some context for the Symphony #1, the only work on the program I’ve heard, and a sense of preparedness and eagerness for the other two works.
